Subject: [gentoo-dev] reminder: USE=static is *not* for libraries
Date: Thu, 31 Aug 2006 02:41:28
1 just found another broken package that uses the 'static' USE flag to control
2 generation of static libraries (aka libfoo.a)
4 this is very much wrong ... USE=static is only to control the static-ness of
5 binaries ... if your package has an option to build shared and static
6 libraries, then it had better be building both or you'll get smacked !
